Parent Communication

Parent Communication

Following our Parent’s Forum, on 28th April 2016, we have created a ‘Parent communication pledge’ which will help to improve Parent communication.

Our plegde to you is as follows:

  1. We will send out text messages informing parents that a letter is being sent out that day.
  2. We will hold a Parent Forum every two weeks. The dates will be texted to all parents.
  3. We will support with language barriers through translating letters and holding lots of parent conversations, with translators where necessary.
  4. We will have Parent Communication board on the fence outside school, displaying all parent communication, this will be updated weekly.
